Aquarium Stem Plant ID

Royan

Hello, I bought this plant from my LFS recently but they hadn't changed the labeling on the glass. The person there wasn't sure what it was but it looked nice so I bought it anyways :)

It's a stem plant, fairly short (maybe 4-5 inches) but I'm not sure how long it will grow.
It has a slight pink hue on the underside of thee leaves.

Thanks in advance for any ID's.

Pogostemon stellatus octopus perhaps? The slightly jagged leaves are leading me that way. Possibly grown emersed too, which is why the leaves are broader?

can certainly find a few sites selling that same plant under that name anyway.

Hmmm, it does resemble this
pogostemon-stellatus-octopus-2_600x_3016acf8-f46f-486d-9633-008195ed8b70_470x.jpg image that's listed as pogostemon stellatus octopus. I use to have some pogo(before cyanobacteria ruined it) that it didn't resemble either the pic above or my plant but like you suggested, it's possibly because it was grown emersed.

I'll update the thread if it develops wispy octopus leaves.

Not sure about this, but does it look like
Limnophila Hippuridoides at all?
It has the same serrated leaves as well as the the red undersides as well. Here is a link to tropica aquarium plants for a picture of the plant.

A test is if you cut the stem of the plant outside the water. Supposedly it creates a strong scent so it may be worth it to try this out as well.

I agree it does remind me of it..... not a expert though!
